NAME
       dialups - list of terminal devices requiring a dial-up password

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/dialups

DESCRIPTION
       dialups  is  an   ASCII  file which contains a list of terminal devices
       that require a dial-up password. A dial-up password  is  an  additional
       password  required  of users who access the computer through a modem or
       dial-up port.  The correct password must be entered before the user  is
       granted access to the computer. The set of ports that require a dial-up
       password are  listed in the dialups file.

       Each entry in the dialups file is a single line of the form:



              terminal-device



       where

       terminal-device         The full path name of the terminal device  that
                               will  require  a  dial-up  password  for  users
                               accessing the computer through a modem or dial-
                               up port.



       The  dialups  file should be owned by the root user and the root group.
       The file should have read and write permissions for  the  owner  (root)
       only.
